Tesoro Silver uMax Metal Detector
with 8" Search Coil and Lifetime Warranty.

The Silver Sabre series has had a very long history with Tesoro Electronics. It was first introduced in 1983. In a time when "lunch box" detectors were the norm, the original Silver Sabre was perceived as a toy unit. There have been many men who bought one for the wife and wound up using it because it worked as well as any other detector on the market. Advertised as "strong, simple, silent", the Silver Sabre has gone through many changes over the years. The Silver Sabre Plus added a no motion all metal circuit. The Silver Sabre II added a new plastic housing and new Hybrid Circuit technology.

Several years ago we introduced the Silver Sabre uMax with an incredibly small housing and Max Boost technology. A number of men bought one for their wife and wound up using it because it worked as well as any other detector on the market. (Sounds familiar doesn’t it?) We have decided to bring the Silver back full circle to where it started. The original Silver Sabre was a turn on and go detector with Silent Search discrimination and all metal modes. The new Silver uMax returns to its roots and offers strong, silent and simple operation once again. The Silver uMax uses a microprocessor to control the audio tone and battery test.

Great Machine

Review by Robert on November 18, 2017

I have one and it is my go to machine, I use the small coil and have found coins 12 in. deep, in trashy areas. Very easy to use and the battery lasts forever!! Highly recommended for first machine.

Superb Metal Detector!

Review by Matthew H on July 21, 2015

This detector is overlooked by many, but it can do things $700 detectors can do. This machine is a coin and silver magnet. This is a must buy for someone wanting a top quality machine for a lower price!

Tesoro Silver uMax

Review by Jeremy on April 14, 2014

I just received my Tesoro Silver uMax today and I have to say the shipping from Kellyco is supper fast, only took 3 days to get here. I am a beginner at metal detecting, and I have used my mom's Tesoro Vaquero which is also a great machine. I have done a lot of research on metal detecting and I always came back to the Tesoros which I think are the best for the money and you can't beat the Lifetime Warranty. I chose the uMax because it was in my price range plus you don't need all the bells and whistles, just discrimination, sensitivity, and a good ear is all you will ever need. My findings today in my parents yard were 2 cans(5in), 3 quarters 1981, 1984, 1985 all 3 were (3-4in), 1 dime(1in), 2 pennies, 1(2in) the other was on top of the ground. I only got to detect for an hour today so I can't say how deep the uMax goes, but you will not be disappointed with this machine or any other Tesoro. Happy hunting.
